From ETMC Tyler
TYLER - ETMC will offer a free Knowledge First Forum on thyroid disease with Dr. Maxwell Kwaku, an endocrinologist with ETMC First Physicians, on Monday, Dec. 8, at noon in the ETMC Pavilion in Tyler.
“If you feel fatigued, depressed, experience menstrual irregularities, dry skin, sudden weight loss or gain or problems with bowel movements, these could be a sign of problems with your thyroid,” explained Dr. Kwaku. “The thyroid is a gland located in the front of the neck that secretes hormones that control many of your body's functions, such as metabolism and temperature regulation. An over or underactive thyroid can lead to a variety of health problems.”
Lunch will be served. Free parking is available next to the ETMC Pavilion, located at 801 Clinic Drive in Tyler. The gate and building will open at 11:15 a.m. and the presentation will begin at noon. Please pre-register by calling 866-333-ETMC and press 6.
